About Doug Cobbs

Doug R. Cobbs, Sr. was born in Richmond, Va. and attended John Marshall High School. He played multiple sports during his high school career, a theme he would carry throughout his professional career. He attended Virginia Commonwealth University and received a B.S. degree in Health and Physical Education. After 14 years as a teacher and coach of multiple sports at Fredrick Military Academy, he moved to Ridgecroft School, where he spent the next 30 years as a teacher, coach, and Athletic Director. During his tenure, he taught Health, P.E., and History. He coached soccer, boys basketball, girls basketball, and softball. He served the NCISAA on the Board of Directors/Board of Managers for 25 years, retiring in the summer of 2015. He was a part of the growth of the NCISAA into 3 divisions, the inclusion of 7th graders in varsity sports, and was the Sport Chair for Softball as it transitioned from slow pitch to fast pitch. Coach Cobbs has always put the kids first and has always been a voice for the 1A schools. In 2015, the NCISAA honored Doug Cobbs and his career by naming its Distinguished Service Award on his behalf.
